Reconfigurable computer architectures are becoming increasingly popular for many applications. The evaluation of design methods and concepts of one particular reconfigurable architecture: soft-core processors. Soft-core processors provide a lot of options for system designers. Due to reconfigurability nature of FPGA's, have been very effective to implement peripheral based applications. In this paper, a new peripheral based arithmetic application is designed, the keyboard module is a custom hardware module that accepts input from a PS/2 serial keyboard and outputs character data to the VGA input memory.
